NATURE KIDS SUMMER BEACH DAYS!
Join us for fun in the sun and sand! Stories, songs, wilderness skills and crafts. Make new friends, play games, laugh and learn. Each day will bring new activities and adventures. Children will be encouraged to use all of their senses for observation on daily nature walks as we explore tide pools, the forest and learn about local plants and animals. Games will focus on confidence building, teamwork and FUN! Learn through stories, songs, art, exploration, and imaginary play.

Tofino Nature Kids is a nature immersion program. We spend all of our time together outside in the summer. Please consider if your child will be comfortable in an outdoor learning environment. Your family must be committed to ensuring your child is suitably dressed and fully prepared for the weather every day. We do have a small covered area for especially soggy times or special projects and events.
Our program only has invisible walls, therefore, our programs are not suitable for children who are prone to uninhibited "wandering".
"Dear Jay and the staff at Tofino Nature Kids. I just wanted to thank you inviting my boys to join your drop-in program last Wednesday afternoon. They both enjoyed themselves immensely (despite initial nervousness). Jacob was proud to say he made several friends and that he did "fun things". Caleb soaked in all the attention given by the teachers and loved the exploration time. We are so glad we "bumped into Tofino Nature Kids" during our week in Tofino. Sending the boys to the Nature Kids gave them a chance to interact with other kids their age and allow my husband and I to get out sea-kayaking on our own. We are now back in Gatineau, Quebec and jumping into a wading pool instead of a tidal pool to cool off. Thanks again for offering such a great program to visitors in the area. Keep it up."
"My kid has been going to Nature Kids since a week after he turned three. We love the experiential focus and toy-free outside time that encourages creativity, cooperation and sense of adventure. The staff are passionate about both our local environment as well as cultivating meaningful play time for kids, the perfect combo! We have had nothing but excellent experiences with Nature Kids- both at the Summer Beach Program and the Botanical Garden Program. Thanks Nature Kids!"
